Before this tournament started you could get upwards of 200/1 about Japan in the RWC outright betting and 16/1 for them to top their pool The hosts had Ireland and Scotland for company in Pool A but they won all 4 of their matches to finish 3 log points clear of the Irish who claimed the runners up spot.Japan had started with a 30-10 bonus point win over Russia and then defied the odds to beat Ireland 19-12, a game they started as 20 point underdogs. A 38-19 win over Samoa still left Japan needing something from their final pool match against Scotland to be sure of a quarter final place. They were were slight underdogs for that game as well but they came through with a 28-21 victory. Japan have been ever present in RWC finals but this is their first appearance in the knockout rounds
After losing their opening match of the tournament 23-13 to the All Blacks a runners up spot in Pool B was the target for the Boks, a mission they achieved with plenty of daylight. Bonus point victories over Namibia (57-3), Italy (49-3) and Canada (66-7) took the Boks try tally to 27 and the squad was rotated on a regular basis to keep key men fresh for the knockout rounds.Reinach, Makazole Mapimpi and Bongo Mbonambi have all scored 3 tries for South Africa in the tournament so far.South Africa’s previous RWC titles came on home soil in 1995 and in France in 2007. In RWC 2015 the Boks recovered from the shock defeat to Japan to win the rest of their pool matches.
